    Hi, my name s Stephanie Plum Somebody Else and I m just like Stephanie Plum except I bake cupcakes and have a Magical Talent instead of being a bounty hunter You don t know who Stephanie Plum is You should buy one of her books There are heaps She s not a supermodel but she s sexy, she doesn t have an intimidating set of qualifications but she s still smart and sassy and she has two dangerous, mysterious hunks who fancy her So she s just like me except I only have one mysterious, dangerous hunk who fancies me but he can t shag me or we d lose our Magical Talents The other one is a bad guy who doesn t fancy me except I m not sure really which one is the bad guy maybe both are Anyway, I fancy the good guy but I can t shag him cos we d lose our Magical Talents Did I already say that Anyway, just like Stephanie Plum, I have preposterous adventures, only mine are even preposterous because they involve Magic Soon I ll have heaps of books too because Evanovitch writes them at about one a week, which is easy for her, because apparently they are all the same Anyway, I have to go now feeling frustrated cos of this Magical Artifact that makes me horny but I can t shag this great guy I met because then we d lose our Magical Talents I already said that Sorry Complete waste of time and probably the most boring magic system I ve ever come across I recommend running away screaming if you are presented with this book.

    Be vewy, vewy quiet, I m hunting Stones or possibly dwawfes Wicked Appetite is like an episode of Looney Tunes It s goofy, it s over the top, and it s hilarious Janet Evanovich finally gets her groove back after a long, torturous Plum met into really boring fiction I first fell in love with Evanovich way back when she was writing weird, wacky romances for Loveswept Books like Naughty Neighbor and The Rocky Road to Romance marked her as being a class apart, especially in the paperback romance category, where funny, zany books are not exactly the norm I mean, what other romance novel have you read that involves large dogs with a passion for burgers, Capitol Hill mysteries involving pigs, cookbooks for dog food and trigger happy geriatrics I cannot tell a lie, I liked Stephanie Plum and the Trenton gang too about thirteen books ago Thankfully, Wicked Appetite is the first book in a series about the Seven Deadly Sins, so it can t go beyond, you know, seven books Lizzy Tucker is a baker who bakes superlative cupcakes at Dazzle bakery and tries to peddle her cookbook to various publishers so she can keep her house from falling down about her ears Until one day, a dark, creepy looking stranger walks up to the bakery and brands her He is instantly followed by a tall, blond, hot hunk who claims that the stranger in black is his evil, homicidal cousin, Gerwulf Grimoire He goes on to reveal that Lizzy is an Unmentionable no, not a piece of underwear, but a person with enhanced abilities to sense magical objects whose help he needs to recover the lost Stones containing the Seven deadly sins The way it s been told to me is that there are seven deadly sins known collectively as SALIGIA Envy, Pride, Greed, Gluttony, Lusty, Grumpy, and Sneezy I think some of those were dwarfs, I said to DieselDiesel tells Lizzy that any person who manages to collect all seven stones will have the power to create hell on earth His mandate is to find the stone of Gluttony before Wulf does and return it to BUM, the governing body part for Unmentionables My orders are to stop Wulf from acquiring the Stones Probably, no one cares if he collects the dwarfs What happens if you only get some of the Stones but not all of the Stones I don t know Maybe you just create hell in Connecticut Along for the ride are a cast of characters straight out of a screwball comedy flick There s Gloria, whose inept attempts at casting a spell of truth always conclude in disaster for her poor victim, who graduates from speaking gibberish to merely gobbling Maybe it ll wear off, Glo said Some of these spells are temporary The book isn t always specific about length of time Hear that I said to Shirley Good news The spell might wear off Shirley flipped me the finger More good news, Diesel said She knows sign language And then there is a one eyed ninja cat And a monkey that s almost human, and fluent in sign language too Also a rival Unmentionable with a fetish for medieval role playing No, Sir Hatchelot, you don t look stupid at all This book is full of wisecracks and one liners There you have it, I said to Mel Mensher The big guy here has an unusual energy field Lady, I m talking full blown spectral phenomenon Well I asked Diesel I m not spectral, but I ve been told I can be pretty damn phenomenal This is like other urban fantasy books in the same way that Bugs Bunny is like Yogi Bear If you are expecting Wicked Appetite to have world building, plot development, suspense build up, etc, you are destined for disappointment This is not an urban fantasy book, really Nor is it a paranormal romance I m not sure exactly what it is, but it sure as hell is fun The lack of plot development and build up sometimes makes the book seem abrupt and uneven There is also no real point to a lot of the book There are very many, many scenes that have been inserted simply for the amusement factor, with no regard to whether they further the plot or not Evanovich s writing style is funny and wiseass, but no one could call it sophisticated These are the sort of things that will disturb and possibly severely annoy serious UF readers, but for someone looking for a summer beach read, or some fluff to laugh away the blues, this is the perfect book And for fans of Janet Evanovich, like me, this book heralds the return of the non collaborative, non Plummy, original and gold plated queen of the funny romance I ll be looking forward to the next book in this series.P.S I just discovered that Diesel and Carl the monkey have previously appeared in the Stephanie Plum novels, and that Diesel, in fact, was a sort of love interest for Stephanie I m not sure how to feel about this Doesn t Stephanie have enough men in her life already She s really not all that, so why does she have all these men falling at her feet I haven t read the books with Diesel in them, so I m going to pretend I never found out that tidbit, and Diesel is a brand new character

    I didn t finish this, I was listening to the audio and stopped about 1 5 of the way in The main character is very similar to Stephanie Plum except she can cook and has blonde hair Her physical description, her style of dress, her voice, her experience with men boys a failed engagement v Stephanie s failed marriage both failed in comical ways The main character has a side kick that is goofy and off the charts but so not interesting it made me miss Lula The main character inherits a house just like Joe in the Plum series and a main character did in Evanovich s Overboard Diesel was just not interesting and seemed to be a combination of Ranger and Joe Diesel was interesting in the in between Plum novels Evanovich obviously has a formula and she sticks with it It appears from her last few in between Plum books and this book that she she wants to capitalize on the popularity of urban fantasy books, but this book is just so uninteresting Not worth purchasing or the time to listen read.

    Janet Evanovich is the well known author of the Stephanie Plum series of books, and here she begins another series that edges firmly into the paranormal arena Elizabeth Tucker lives in Marblehead, just north of Boston, and makes cupcakes for a living while living in the house bequeathed to her by Great Aunt Ophelia Her life is perfectly pleasant but very ordinary when two men walk into it and proceed to turn it upside down One is Wulf and he is a Bad Man The other is Diesel, our Alpha Male, who explains to Liz that she is an Unmentionable and has to help him search out the SALIGIA stones so named because of taking the first initials for the Latin names of the Seven Deadly Sins Wulf is also looking for the stones and so Liz is caught in a race against time to discover their whereabouts.I was really looking forward to Wicked Appetite when I first heard about it I thought it sounded amusing and exciting Disappointingly, the reverse is true It is very often extremely unfunny and there was not a hint of excitement to be found within the pages.I enjoyed a few things in the book principle amongst them the description of Liz s cupcakes, mostly because it made me hungry to eat some of them Another large benefit was the slightness of Wicked Appetite, which meant I didn t have to endure it for too long.There was very little other than that to enjoy The plot was preposterous the manner in which it was explained to Liz was paper thin the characters were barely two dimensional, let alone three I couldn t tell you anything about the motivations of Diesel, Liz, Glo, Wulf and any of the rest of the cast of characters What s , thanks to the frivolous manner of writing, I couldn t have cared either.The humour was quite often tiresome, rather than funny I use as an example the monkey Carl Now, the first time he gives someone the finger I did find myself smiling at the idea, but on one page it happened no less than three times At that point I just wanted to shake said monkey and throw Wicked Appetite across the room.But I did persevere to the end, although it took all my patience and I was not rewarded by the climax to this book It was boring, there was no sense of tension or threat to any of the characters, and I realised to my horror that it left a set up for novels in this series.Wicked Appetite can be equated to eating candy floss seems like a good idea at the time, but leaves you unfulfilled and with a great sense of disappointment.

    This was a fun series and a nice change in pace I really liked Diesel from some of the Stephanie Plum short stories so it was nice to see him in his actual element but I have to say, I think I like him and Stephanie together as a team than Lizzy and him but maybe that is just because I m familiar with it, who knows It was fun seeing Carl though, he was a nice surprise to the story line.

    I loved the humor in this book I seriously cannot think of a book that made me laugh so much I love sexy and fun Diesel, and Wulf seemed interesting I have a feeling he s going to be making some mischief later in the series I think those two are going to be fun to have together I really enjoyed the banter between Lizzy and Diesel, and Lizzy s friends were funny, too For these reasons, I will definitely continue the series Oh yeah, and how can you go wrong with a monkey I love Carl The only thing I have to say negative about the book is that nothing really happened It was all setup for the rest of the series, I guess, and never really went anywhere Not much action in the book It was a quirky, fun read The basis of the story is the seven deadly sins, and the road the author took with it will be interesting.As a side note, after reading some other reviews I realize that this is sort of a spinoff of the Stephanie Plum series, which I have not yet read but am planning on reading soon Apparently Diesel and Carl the monkey first appeared in the Stephanie Plum series.

    Do you think a monkey farting and flipping everyone off is hilarious Ok, maybe the first time but would you like to read about him flipping people off every other page If so, perhaps this is your book First off I ve been an Evanovich fan for years I have been anxiously awaiting this new series and hoping that going in a new direction and make a sparkling book like she used to I have felt like the last few books she s released were flat, boring, and uninspired So what happened here Diesel is a character in the between the numbers plum novellas He s big, bad, and kind of a super hero but where does he go when not in Trenton, NJ What all does he do and what makes him tick When I heard he was getting his own spin off series I assumed that we would be getting into his unmentionables world I thought it would be a great new series.Reading this book I kept thinking that either one of her kids or employees wrote this and turned it in under her name, or else she is just tired of writing but likes paychecks This isn t a romance It s not a mystery It s not even action adventure I don t know WHAT this book was supposed to be.I do know that it was short With nothing but simple short words, double spaced with nice big font, and no real plot to speak of or have to pay attention to it was less than 3hrs to read Instead of editing, plot, and or pages Evanovich wastes precious space with a lot of we got out of the car and climbed a flight of stairs Then we went and got __ and __ to eat She doesn t give us enough interest or action There s no insight to the characters or this unmentionable world they re a part of The plot is literally find the special stone before the bad guy But no rush Enter Lizzy She s a cupcake maker and baker living in Salem, MA One day a scary guy name Wulf appears, followed by Diesel, and it all goes from there She has some unmentionable aka special supernatural ability to find objects and teamed with Diesel they set out to beat Wulf to the punch save the world etc The entire book is from Lizzy s point of view another junk food eating but still thin Evanovich heroine We don t get any insight into Diesel unless he really is simply no personality muscle for the organization he works for Apparently he only drives Porsche vehicles, and Carl the monkey followed him to this book from the Plum series Do you know Carl He flips everyone and everything off.I think what really makes me MAD about this one is that it could have been FANTASTIC I mean really We ve got a badass almost comic book like hero out to save the world A woman discovering she s not just a wicked baker, but also has supernatural abilities It s set in Salem, MA and Evanovich could really have made this a fantastic whole new fictional world She could have filled it with rich detail and plot twists Hilarious moments and scenes that I know she can write and a lighter take on the supernatural that I would have welcomed with open arms.Instead we got a monkey that flips us off on every other page Oh, and the promise of no romance since she states that Diesel Lizzy can t hook up or one of them will loose all their powers, and they can t do that because, you know, fate of the world rests in both of their hands I feel like I should say something nice about this, so I ll tell you that there were some interesting supporting characters The bits with Glo and her spells, the one eyed cat ok that s it That s the only parts I remember as good How sad is that

    You You don t read Janet Evanovich What gives Me Witches You You know there s going to be romance in this story, right Me Yes, butit s October I wanted a witchy story You So you picked this one Out of all the witchy stories out there, you picked a genre you don t like by an author you no longer read Me YOU DON T KNOW ME Also, everything else was checked out You Well, don t come crying to me when you hate this Me wellyou see You walks away, shaking head Ok, so maybe you do know me Maybe you know me really well and so you re probably surprised by those three stars Is this a 3 star book Absolutely not Did I like this book anyway Yes, I did I used to read the Stephanie Plum novels back in the 90 s and I know I loved them then but I also know when I tried to pick em back up in the last several years, I couldn t do it I went into this fully aware that I might not like it at all based on how dated and sexist and plot holey and formulaic and ridiculous those Plum novels are.This one is no different only it s not yet dated, not quite.So we start with an inherited house in Marblehead between Boston and Salem and a bakery where Lizzie makes cupcakes, the best cupcakes This story is about as sweet and filling as the cupcakes Lizzie makes She works with Clara and Glo Diesel and Wulf are the guys in her life There s a cat with a marble eye and, later, a monkey Also, a spellbook and a broom and some charms that hold the power of gluttony.At first, I kept thinking, This is totally written like a sitcom It s so fast paced and lacking in depth, just a big infodump to get the tale across in 30 minutes Then I thought, No, it s like a Saturday morning cartoon from the 80 s After rolling my eyes one too many times, I put it on 1.5 speed and found it sounds like a bad radio play from the 40 s Delightful So, ok, yes this is fluff and it s dumb and corny butthere s a one eyed cat and a monkey I was entertained and listening to this helped my day fly by And, seriously, that monkey is worth the price of admission ergo, 3 stars

    I was familiar with Diesel from the Between the Numbers Plum sub series and I liked many of the Stephanie Plum books anyway, so when I saw that the author was going to be writing a new one with a than hinted at supernatural angle, I picked it up Forgive the run on sentence Anyway, I have it listed on my better than I thought it would be shelf because Evanovich s recent books have not been her best efforts and I had a lower expectation going into this My 5 star rating comes from my personal enjoyment of the book, rather than it being a literary masterpiece plus the bar was low to begin with In my opinion, but many others share the same sentiments about the recycled plots Just look at the other reviews of the recent entries in the series if you don t believe me.

    I have received a lot of messages and questions about this novel What do you think of it How good is it Does she deliver again How much is Diesel actually in it I could go on and on and on I love it Hopefully within the confines of this post I will answer all the questions that you may have, and then just do yourself a favor and click on the book cover here and suck this bad boy up I laughed my fanny off and then some I had many of the same questions you had Can she pull a full length novel off using Diesel, not just a shortened Between the Plums type thing Here is the central plotline in a nutshell Seven Stones of Power No one knows when they were created or by whom, each said to represent one of the Seven Deadly Sins Cryptic yes, but how else are you going to tie together a story with a muffin baker, an Unmentionable, Carl the Monkey, a wannabe witch, and a one eyed half tailed cat The simple answer is here before you, Wicked Appetite Janet Evanovich should patent her style as she continues to make me laugh and provides me with simple minded entertainment as only she can Do I believe that a monkey knows when to spontaneously give anyone and everyone the you are numero uno hand gesture If it is a Janet Evanovich novel, yes Carl the monkey has always made me laugh and he is ever present in this novel Diesel is Diesel I don t think I can say much about him as he seems to be one of the coolest good guys in this genre besides Ranger.Here is a taste of the novel Diesel is speaking first Honey, you smell bad way beyond the nasty I closed my eyes and slumped back in the seat Can we review what s happened here In the interest of saving the world from a hellish future, we ve got some poor woman talking nonsense, we ve blown a man s house to smithereens, and now we ve totally trashed another man s apartment And if that s not enough, we ve acquired a cat with one eye, and a monkey Diesel looked at me Your point I blew out a sigh I don t have a point My life is out of control Everything was looking so good a couple days ago, with my own house and a terrific job And now everything is facaca Your life isn t out of control, Diesel said, It s expanded I know that some are going to say that this is almost a Plum novel without Lulu, but you know what, in my book, Janet Evanovich delivered the goods and entertained me I have always enjoyed Diesel and all the mystical stuff that surrounds him The way she used him, giving us a fuller explanation of him and his world, was just the thing Bringing in Carl the Monkey, the cat, the mystery and history of Salem , Mass all came together and worked well Do I suggest this novel, without a doubt My wife is enjoying it now and all of a sudden I am the most popular father to a bunch of daughters looking to get to read it before the other That usually only happens to me each mid June I am not minding a double dose of that Pick it up and laugh a little, now if I could only find my fanny.What are you reading
